I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time for more than a year

Pros

Working in the technical organization, you get to experience scale at a level that very few other places come even close to, managing assets across dozens of datacenters across the globe. My coworkers are pretty good given my experiences at other employers. The management has good direction if not maybe a little too much ambition. The benefits are good with a choose your coverage type of health plan.

Cons

WIth the scale so large, even the smallest of changes becomes a large undertaking. The Eagan, MN campus while nice is lacking of amenities compared to other large corporate campuses. In the technical organization, positions are very siloed, so branching out of your area can be a bit more difficult than other places.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Add some nice amenities to the Eagan campus (home to nearly 7000 employees) such as a minute clinic or beverages beyond coffee. Be more aware of headcount constraints and get people into positions a bit quicker.

    Pros

    Great company with excellent benefits compared to most american companies.
    Good opportunities to find other positions globally.
    Development organization is trying to become agile.

    Cons

    The benefits used to be much better before the merger but that might be because of the times, things are pretty bad for the financial industry and it really hit TR's bottom line.
    Depending on what area one works in, recent dramatic changes in management meant layoffs mostly for people with seniority and an opinion. New managers changed processes completely and hired mostly college students to cut cost... but I guess it will save the company money, in the near term.
    Used to be able to work from home some days but that has been completely eliminated. Now everyone has to be in the office even if you have late night calls with your team in Asia. I thought companies in general are leaning more and more towards dispersed teams that telecommute, but no longer at TR... dispersed maybe, but you still have to waste highly valuable real estate in Times Square and be there every day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You might want to consider flattening your corporate structure somewhat... 5+ layers of management can be quite counterproductive to getting things done.
    Take a look down the management ladder and see if everyone is 'really' doing a good job.
